The Jaguar XK is the star of the film.
15 November 2005 | by (S. Paulo, Brazil) – See all my reviews

It is not easy to make a film where the star is a car, and Roger Corman knew how to do it. The car is the Jaguar XK, probably the 120 and seeing this car on the screen looking brand new makes you realize how once there was a species called "sports cars" that does not exist anymore. Just compare that car with the ultra, over luxurious XKs of today. Another car I was happy to see in the movie was the Triumph TR2. The plot about a fugitive (John Ireland) that kidnaps a woman with a Jag (Dorothy Malone) blends well with the racing scenes, which are excellent. Ireland, driving Malone's car takes part in a race that will end in Mexico, he duels with another Jaguar for the delight of anyone who enjoys motor racing.
